Huge step up from the debut

This is a total return to form for Jake E. Lee. He has been my favorite guitarist since '83 and a massive influence on my playing. I admit to being underwhelmed with the first RDC album.
This album on the other hand.... is very cohesive. The songs are strong. Jake is brilliant. Its a mature album as far as his guitar playing. He really stretches out and uses a ton of colors on this album.
For all of you guitarists who want guitar 'hero' stuff, there are still plenty of moments where he really blazes, but overall this is album is more about solid songs and very precise parts delivered the way only a guy as talented as Jake E. Lee can.
You can tell that a LOT of TLC went into picking different guitars, amps, pedals combos etc. to paint with a much wider spectrum. Great production, great mix. Give this album a listen. It is well worth it.

Why no bonus track

Really enjoying Patina but wondering why the bonus track Punchdown thats on the import CD version is not included on the iTunes version or US CD , its not like it can`t fit . Thats my only complaint

Thank you Jake!

I found the new song on YouTube with a great video yesterday...totally killer riff and harmonies. I just love the sound..wish the vocals had more of an edge but Jake totally kills it. This is the kind of music myself and many others crave... I feel I’ve been deprived while sitting around waiting for Eddie Van Halen. To hell with Van Halen, they can stay in hiding. This band is for real. Going to have this on repeat for heavy lifting days!
